First Paragraph: JFK’s Last Hundred Days

JFK'sLast100DaysIt’s hard to believe, but it’s been nearly fifty years since the assassination of President John Kennedy. So many books have been written about this man and many around this anniversary. I chose just one of them to read, JFK’s Last 100 Days. It was written by the historian Thurston Clarke.

Prologue to the Last Hundred Days

Even though people may be well known, they still hold in their hearts the emotions of a simple person for the moments that are the most important of those we know on earth–birth, marriage, and death.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?

Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea asks us to share the first paragraph of a book we are reading. As you can see it’s called First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros. Visit Diane to read more First Paragraphs.

  1. Hi Margot. I’d keep reading. JFK was such a compelling character even after many decades after his death. And I like the style that’s shown a bit in the prologue. I’d like to find out more about the author’s ‘attack’ or ‘take’ on this subject. Thanks for sharing.

    Here’s my First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros :)

  2. Margot, I would definitely read this –good intro and I am all about the Kennedy legacy.

    I’m not sure if I’d read this or not. I’ve read one or two books about the Kennedy family and I’m not so sure I want to read more. But I hope you enjoy this book, Margaret. I’m interested in your review!
